We’re all for a gimmick as long as it adds value and really works. So we were immediately smitten by Strands by Closet Gold, which we discovered at the recent Accessories Council Holiday Preview. Each set features a pair of strips with coordinating magnetic strips. Pull them apart and stick them anywhere… on jeans pockets, shoes, handbags, even home decor items. The magnet is that strong and once placed, it will hold.
Closet Gold was founded by Melissa Garcia in 2017 as “a destination for women desiring effortless style with of course, a little edge.” Why the name? “For as long as I can remember, any piece of clothing or accessory that I had in my wardrobe that were INSANE irreplaceable treasures – were given the name “Closet Gold.” My most favorite pair of leopard harem pants, yup they are most definitely Closet Gold. My vision is to create treasurable pieces of Closet Gold, irreplaceable INSANE pieces of fashion, so every woman can have their own Closet Gold.
Our favorite option? Stick them on shoulders as epaulettes, an increasingly growing embellishment capturing the military trend. There are four pairs, in gold or silvertone with beads or crystals. Retails range from $89 to $229.
